Hope that you didn't trade all in at the same time because you might be banned from trading in now. Someone refresh my memory, how many controllers are you allowed to trade in before being banned? I remember a few people getting banned for trading in too many controllers of the same type (ex. 2 DS4s in same transaction).

You can trade up to 4 of any SKU/item within a rolling 30-day window. For accessories, you are allowed to trade them all in at the same time. No need to go to another store.


2 xbox one, 1 360 and 1 DS3. Hopefully don't get banned.

You won't get banned.

Picked up Sabateur II for $0.08 in gold.  I was going to get that at some point anyway because the first game is pretty solid (especially how they expanded it way beyond the original).   I had Mad Age & This Guy on my wish list from a past sale or something... for $0.04 worth of gold coins... sure... done.   I also grabbed Defunct for something like $0.39 gold.  It looked fun.  Preventive Strike for $0.01 gold... yeah, ok... it's not a huge gamble... figure I'll take one for the team.


Not bad at all, spent nothing but gold from my retail purchases or past digital purchases.  Two out of the four I'm interested in seriously playing (Sabateur II & Mad Age)... so not bad at all.

I would recommend anyone buying the penny games to not purchase with gold as you will get at least 1 gold point from any purchase, even a $.01 purchase.

American national citizen confirmed. Here's a hint: "everyone is spying on everyone" especially the USSA. The Chinese are far down the pecking order for me.

The Chinese are pretty much the only ones involved when it comes to my peking order.

For anyone remotely interested in Obra Dinn, I'd caution against watching streams or reading anything that spoils the gameplay/puzzles. It's a lot more fun without knowing anything, and once you know the puzzle, the game loses all it's replayability. (not to detract from Frisky's stream, I just like that game a lot and wouldn't want anyone interested spoiled at all) 


Yea, I second going in cold to Obra Dinn. You'll be glad you knew nothing about it when you start.

Hollow Knight for $9!


Do I:

1. Get mad that it's been $7.50 in the past

2. Hold off and hope for a physical copy as a Christmas gift

3. Buy it now because it was on sale six times in six months and then nothing for seven months straight

One of the few games I would have no regrets paying full price for.

Will we ever see a sale on any of the Picross games or The Mummy Demastered? We just don't know.

Not sure if this is of any interest time you, but you can redeem 1000 silver coins for My Nintendo Picross: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the 3DS.

Thanks for posting this. My store had it, it was in my active offers, and the $15 came off the $29.97 price! 15 bucks for the bundle is a great deal!

I picked one up the other day. It is worth it just for the extra long USB-C cable and the USB-C car charger. The controller seems decent enough, too.

thats basically all i've used for almost 20 years.. explain. 

I keep a zero balance on my CC's and use cash or debit for everything. If I have to pay it off over time.. i don't need it.

In addition to the above points, if you have bills coming out of your checking account and someone cleans out it by stealing your #, you are going to be hit with returned check fees from the institutions that have your checks bounce.


With CCs, fraudulent charges are relatively easy to bounce back from, and don't leave you broke, atm/debit less.

MS needs to bring some exciting first party AAA new IP to the next xbox. This would make the xbox and it's gamepass more enticing imo.


The PS4 and Switch are a better value proposition because of exclusive games imo. 


3rd Party games and/or the usual suspects (halo, gears, and forza) will not carry the xbox into must have territory unless the PS5 is significantly inferior hardware and/or significantly overpriced. I'd like MS to wow me with exciting games like the 360 did back in time.


Better hardware, less expensive cost, and exclusive games made the PS4 a better value proposition at launch (xbox one x is too late to really matter)


Nintendo will always be on its own playing field...they are gaming "Disney" for better and worse. 


I have enjoyed my PS4 (and pro) and Switch quite a bit for very different reasons. Neither system can replace the other for what they do best.


The xbox is too much like an inferior gaming pc and reliant on 3rd parties to be worth buying for its few exclusives (unless of course its what all your friends play on and/or you are a die hard fan)


I'm curious to see if this generation's consoles (Xbox/PS) are serious about their exclusive software. If everything becomes digital purchases and services then the attractiveness of a gaming pc (despite casual fear) will start to make more sense as an investment.


This could be even more so if consoles continue veering towards "phone upgrade cycles" with multiple iterations during the same generation. 


I begrudgingly bought a PS4 Pro which rendered my launch PS4 obsolete and a lesser experience. The 1X was too rich for my blood by the time it came out and now makes my interest in a 1S nonexistent since it's inferior and without strong exclusives.


I personally would prefer that either there are two versions of the console at launch (casual and pro) or a shorter generation when the consoles become too underpowered...this generations' half step is the wrong direction.

I think MS's long-term goal with GamePass and XCloud is to not need to sell Xboxes at all and just being a streaming platform for everything with a screen.
